Okay, I have no idea how you can do this and i would like to know how. http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?p...d=1644373073562

Edit: Okay first of all I did look around. All the other bows have springs and catches. This one does not.

I'm almost positive that you could take a look at some of the homemade bows that people have made and apply the exact workings of them on a much small scale to fit your Nitefinder. All it takes is a little research, which coincidentally, can get you very far in life.

Lt Dan about summed it up: take a look around, it's been done a thousand times. Don't ask others to do for you what you are unwilling or incapable of doing yourself (like using the search feature).

1. Glue a 1/2" PVC cross on your NF plunger tube as if it were a normal coupler.
2. Use epoxy putty to plug up two equal-length 1/2" PVC segments for bow arms.
3. Goop or cement the bow arms onto the cross.
4. Add string.
5. Cut a 3/4" or so segment of 1/2" PVC. Shove a 3" length of 1/2" CPVC into the PVC so about 1-1/2" protrudes from the end.
6. Goop or cement the PVC into the cross.

That is not a proof and I hate you.

This is a proof.

Want to show: ZTM is the worst. The use of QED above is the worst. He used QED in this way. Therefore, he is the worst, which is what we wanted to prove. QED, FAG.

How can I make this any simpler? THERE IS NO SPRING IN THE ONE IN THE PICTURE. THERE IS NO CATCH EITHER.

First, coupler your NF (check the modifications directory if you don't know how to do this)
Then, do this. Make it smaller if you want, but I wouldn't go smaller than 24"
Then, take the spring out of your NF. You still want the catch though. All you are doing is making it bow powered rather than spring powered.
Its really not that hard.

I am pretty sure there is a catch in that nite finder. Why wouldn't there be one?

The bow acts as the spring. If there's not a catch (and I don't see why you wouldn't keep the catch) but if there isn't, then it's just a pull and release gun.
